Apples Decrease Your Risk of Heart Disease
According to the Centre for Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. One person dies every 37 seconds from cardiovascular disease. Apples contain soluble fibre which help lower your blood cholesterol levels. They also contain polyphenols one of which is flavonoid epicatechin, which helps to lower blood pressure. Polyphenols are found in the peel and are good anti-oxidants. We need apples because the compounds that they contain help to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Apples Contribute to Weight Loss
They are less energy-dense but still deliver fibre. They are particularly filling due to this high fibre content that they have which provides a good support for weight loss. We need apples because they contain minerals that support weight loss.
Studies Reveal that Eating Apples Reduces the Risk of Type-2 Diabetes
This is particularly because the polyphenols in apples help prevent tissue damage to beta cells which are often damaged in people who have type -2 diabetes. Preventing this tissue damage will reduce you risk of contracting type-2 diabetes.
Apples have Elements that Help to Fight Against Asthma
On average more than 1000 persons die from asthma daily worldwide. Fortunately, apples help our bodies to fight against this serious condition. The anti-oxidant content in apples helps to prevent lungs from oxidative damage. Also the peel contains flavonoid quercetin which regulates the immune system and helps to reduce the inflammation of the lungs. We need apples to give our body the extra boost it needs to fight against asthma.
